“Here’s the first song I wanted you to hear from my new record, “The Origin of Love.” This is not a single but a song I really love and wanted to share with you.
I commissioned a short film which I felt perfectly captured the sentiment of the track. The film was directed by Iouri Philippe Paillé and was made in Montreal. This is where the entire album started taking shape a year ago with Nick Littlemore at Planet Studios in Papineau.
I can’t wait for you to hear the first single and the rest of the album very, very soon.” – Mika

R.E.M. premiered the video for “Every Day Is Yours To Win” on YouTube, a video composed entirely of footage from YouTube. As a bonus, lead singer Michael Stipe and the video’s co-director Jim McKay have posted an intro video featuring a list of their favorite YouTube clips. The “Every Day Is Yours To Win” video is part of the Collapse Into Now Film Project, where artists and filmmakers were asked to create short films for each song on the new R.E.M. album Collapse Into Now.
From what I understand, the video for “Every Day Is Yours To Win” is only supposed to be up for 24 hours, so go check it out now!
